“I have witnessed the ecosystems of my island, Antigua, transform around me. I observed the increased development in coastal areas, progression of the tourism industry and the detrimental/destructive effects it has. Collage gives room for exploration, to create and show the relationships between the different elements of the artwork, and critique the interconnectedness of the issues we continue to face. ”
